June Stitch Fix

1. Fill out your Style Profile. This gives detail on your style, sizes, budget and anything else like a link to your pinterest board.

3. Try everything on. They send you Style Cards with recommendations on how to wear your outfit.  You have three days to decide what you do and do not want.

4. Buy what you like and return the rest. If you keep all 5 items, you get 25% off your entire purchase.  Don’t like something, they send you a pre-paid mailing bag to drop in the mailbox.  It is free shipping.

So here is what I got:

My Style Card

Dear John Finnegan Roll Cuff Short ($58), American Able Bev Keyhole Knit Top ($32) and Bay to Baubles Mellie Station Necklace ($34)

20170612_202830

So the shorts are super comfy.  They feel like really soft worn in shorts. I am pretty sure I am going to keep them because I could wear these all summer long. Plus I like that they are a little longer. Not sure about the wash of them but all my other jean shorts are the same wash so something different might be great.

The shirt fits but because of the cut, it is pretty open and if I bend over, you can see everything.  Right now it is in the maybe pile.  The necklace is in the maybe pile too. It is cute but I am not sure how much I will wear it.  I have a closer up of the necklace.

Market & Spruce Tysta Knit Dress ($64)

20170612_203019

Sorry the pic is blurry but of course my photographer didn’t have time to take good quality pictures. Anyway, that is okay because this dress was a big NO.  First, it shows everything.  So if you look at where my thigh is, you see a huge line. That line is fabric for the wrap. So if you can see that…you can see everything! Also, it makes me look pregnant, which I am not.

My last item was the Renee C Galia Cami Blouse ($40).  I did not take a picture of it because it was damaged.  It had a hole in it.  This was the first time I have ever been given a damaged article and this was my 23rd fix.

April Stitch Fix

So my fix came and right when taxes are due.  I took these pictures after a shower because I had a rough work-out. Also, please excuse some weird tan lines you might see, like on my foot.

Here is how Stitch Fix works for the new people:

1. Fill out your Style Profile. This gives detail on your style, sizes, budget and anything else like a link to your pinterest board.

2. Once you have “ordered” your box, they will send you 5 items from a personal stylists.  It is a $20 styling fee which is applied as a credit toward anything you keep.

Here is what I got:

20170422_122720 (1)

So I wore the skirt for every picture, even if it did not go together.  That is just showing my laziness of changing.

First is the Papermoon Rena crochet Detail Knit Top in Navy ($38) and the skirt is the Renee C Cally Pencil Skirt in Teal Green ($48)

20170418_212012-1

I returned both of these. I did not like the top.  I felt is made me look a little too much grandma-ish. So one thing I do is I message two friends who do not know each other for their feedback, along with my husbands.  My husband and one friend liked the skirt.  Both of my friends liked the shirt but my husband did not.  I think because he saw it in person.

Renee C Kalley Knit Top in mint ($34)

20170418_212327-1

This top was buttery soft.  I so wanted to like it but it made me look bigger than I am and just seems outdated.

Jella C Hartwell Keyhole Detail Top in light pink ($36)

20170418_212503-1

I kept this top.  My friends did not like but my husband loved it even though he said because it looks like pjs. This shirt is comfy and looks cute with shorts which is perfect for Houston summers.  It is very lightweight.

MIA Nona Laser-Cut Flats in black ($49)

20170418_212749

I loved these shoes!  I had to keep them.

February Stitch Fix

I didn’t mean for my Trunk Club and Stitch Fix to come back to back but they did and I just have to deal with it.  Also, my photographer is getting worse and worse.  It is like he does not even care about these little fashion shows while he is trying to watch his show. Anyway..

Here is how Stitch Fix works for the new people:

1. Fill out your Style Profile. This gives detail on your style, sizes, budget and anything else like a link to your pinterest board.

2. Once you have “ordered” your box, they will send you 5 items from a personal stylists.  It is a $20 styling fee which is applied as a credit toward anything you keep.

3. Try everything on. They send you Style Cards with recommendations on how to wear your outfit.  You have three days to decide what you do and do not want.

4. Buy what you like and return the rest. If you keep all 5 items, you get 25% off your entire purchase.  Don’t like something, they send you a pre-paid mailing bag to drop in the mailbox.  It is free shipping.

Here is what I got:

20170217_190717

Blurry style card

Abby & Gail Craig Woven Hem Knit Top $34

20170217_185733

Sent back.  This top did nothing for my figure. The top itself was pretty shirt and since the “tutu” was sheer, it would not have been pretty.  Plus the arm holes were a little big.

Honey Punch Dewey Thermal Woven Back Knit Top $38

20170217_185852

Return. This top is weird. It has a cream thermal shirt in front and sheer polka dots in the back.  I do not think it went well together.  It was also short.

Pixley Ellie Printed 3/4 Sleeve Blouse $48

20170217_185951

I have had this shirt on my pinterest board for months.  In fact, I had this one and a gray one.  I actually wanted this one more. When I saw I got it, I did a happy little dance and just hoped it would not let me down. After trying it on, it is definitely a keeper! Nice fit and nice length.

Nine Britton Justeene Knit Dress $48

20170217_190139

Keeper!  I did not want to take this dress off.  It is so soft and comfy.  I can wear this to work with leggings or out and about. I just wish my city had a few more cold days so I can wear it all the time.

Marlyn Schiff Martia Feather Lariat Necklace $34

20170217_190531

This necklace screams me, simple and silver toned.  However, I returned it because I couldn’t figure out how to wear it. It has the feather but also another chain.  Since I couldn’t figure it out, I sent it back.

December Stitch Fix

I didn’t realize how long it has been.  I have a lot of updates over the next couple of days.

First, I have a Stitch Fix update.  I received this box on Friday in the middle of cleaning my house for the holidays.  My hair is beyond bad.  I should really try one time to do an update with good hair but I also know with a toddler running wild, I only have like 5 minutes to do this.

Here is how Stitch Fix works for the new people:

1. Fill out your Style Profile. This gives detail on your style, sizes, budget and anything else like a link to your pinterest board.

2. Once you have “ordered” your box, they will send you 5 items from a personal stylists.  It is a $20 styling fee which is applied as a credit toward anything you keep.

3. Try everything on. They send you Style Cards with recommendations on how to wear your outfit.  You have three days to decide what you do and do not want.

4. Buy what you like and return the rest. If you keep all 5 items, you get 25% off your entire purchase.  Don’t like something, they send you a pre-paid mailing bag to drop in the mailbox.  It is free shipping.

Here is what I got:

20161223_133200

First up is the earrings.

Bay to Baubles Ida Layered Mini Hoops($28)20161223_133139

Not sure if I am keeping them.  They are cute and simple plus silver which is the color of jewelry I prefer but I also do not wear earrings a lot.  I always mean to but I would rather wear a necklace or bracelet.  So I am undecided.

Fate Showen Jacket($88) and Just Black Joey Skinny Jean($88)

20161223_133116

The jacket is a no.  It is super cute and soft however, it is very short on my, like hardly below my belly button and tight.  It was hard to zip it past the girls.

The jeans are 99% of a keep.  They are comfy and fit great.  Plus they are a color that I have been wanting for a while.  I love burgundy because it actually goes with my complexion. I am just not a fan of the price but oh well, it is hard to find jeans that fit!

Same Jeans as above and Papermoon Lucasta Knit Top($38)

20161223_132959

So after I take these photos, I send them to two friends who do not know each other.  The reason: my husband says everything looks good on me.  He will only say no to something if he hates the style.  So my friends are harsher in a good way and tell me their opinions.  One friend said this top could grow on her and the other said no right away so I say no.  It is very soft but not really a fan of the cuff.

Lastly we have the Renee C Jerri Polka Dot Pullover Sweater($64)

20161223_132907

I am a sucker for polka dot.  This is a very cute sweater and I am at like 80% for keep.  My hesitations: all my winter clothes are grey. I love color but for some reason, I keep buying grey in winter.  It is 80 degrees today in December so it is not like I am living where the sun does not shine. Otherwise I love it.

Any thoughts on what I should and should not keep?

November Stitch Fix

I know, it has been awhile so hopefully I will have more posts and some back posts.  I should have some cooking posts if my husband veer sends me the pictures.

Today I have a Stitch Fix post though. I received my same stylists and warning, I did not know my hair was that bad and didn’t realize I hadn’t closed my dresser drawers or that you could see the random dog toy, but this is real life.

Here is how Stitch Fix works if you are new to it:

1. Fill out your Style Profile. This gives detail on your style, sizes, budget and anything else like a link to your pinterest board.

2. Once you have “ordered” your box, they will send you 5 items from a personal stylists.  It is a $20 styling fee which is applied as a credit toward anything you keep.

3. Try everything on. They send you Style Cards with recommendations on how to wear your outfit.  You have three days to decide what you do and do not want.

4. Buy what you like and return the rest. If you keep all 5 items, you get 25% off your entire purchase.  Don’t like something, they send you a pre-paid mailing bag to drop in the mailbox.  It is free shipping.

Here is what I got:

20161029_200728.png

First up is the THML Textured Print Knit top ($64) and Pistola Caterina Frayed Hem Ankle Zip Skinny Jean ($88)

20161029_200228.jpg

I will have the jeans on every picture.  I hated the shirt!  Hated it when I pulled it out and hated it when I put it on. The embroidery made it itchy on my skin and just looked old lady to mean.  The jeans fit good but were not my style at all. Sent back both.

Next is the Daniel Rainn Mandell Lace Overlay Knit Top ($58)

20161029_200359

Hard to tell but the top had some cute detailing.  It was a cute top but it was a little too tight in the chest so I couldn’t lift my arms.  The back also had a little run in the fabric.  Sent back. 

Leo & Nicole Cyprus Cowl Neck Pullover ($68)

20161029_200514

As a child, I hated sweaters.  Hated everything about them.  As I have moved to Houston where we only get a couple of days of sweater weather, I can’t get enough. This was a keeper right when I saw it. Already have plans to wear it for Thanksgiving.  It is a little big which is perfect because I like large cuddly sweaters. Keep!

Last item is the Report Footwear Slicker2 Chelsea Rain Bootie ($40)20161029_200648

Weird fact about me, I have never owned an umbrella or rain shoes, so why start now?  They are cute and I liked the color but I would never wear them. Sent back.

September Stitch Fix

It is time for another Stitch Fix post.  I received my box on Saturday right as we were leaving for our camping trip. I requested the stylists that I have had the last couple times.

Here is how Stitch Fix works if you are new to it:

1. Fill out your Style Profile. This gives detail on your style, sizes, budget and anything else like a link to your pinterest board.

2. Once you have “ordered” your box, they will send you 5 items from a personal stylists.  It is a $20 styling fee which is applied as a credit toward anything you keep.

Here is what I got:

20160906_053723

My stylists note

Papermoon Caliti Corchet Detail Knit Top– $48.  This is the back.

20160905_095602

Papermoon top, Liverpool Adele Skinny Jean in Dark Purple- $88

Street Level Parvin Reversible Tote in Gold- $58

20160905_095131

I love the pants and I love the color.  They fit great everywhere except when I tried to button them. Apparently my hips are a little too wide for them. The tote is being returned because I am not a gold fan and I do not like bags without zippers.  I like the top.

 

Le Lis Regina Aline Skirt in grey- $54

Loveappella Eagan Mesh Detail Knit Top in coral- $48

20160905_094817 (1)

I like the skirt.  It has a stretch waist so it is easy to put on.  The skirt also has texture to it.  I like how soft the shirt is but not a fan of the mesh. I really don’t think it is work appropriate.

 

I think I am keeping the skirt and blue top but not 100% sure.  I have until Friday to decide. Oh and please excuse my hair, I have camp hair as I just got back. IF you want to sign up, click here.

July Stitch Fix

It is time for another Stitch Fix post.  I received my box on Saturday and I really wish I would have planned it better to at least give me a week between the box and my vacation. I requested a stylists that I had in March and a black pencil skirt for work since mine is getting old.

Here is how Stitch Fix works if you are new to it:

1. Fill out your Style Profile. This gives detail on your style, sizes, budget and anything else like a link to your pinterest board.

2. Once you have “ordered” your box, they will send you 5 items from a personal stylists.  It is a $20 styling fee which is applied as a credit toward anything you keep.

Here is what I got:

20160709_162534

Stylists card with the stylists I requested

First up is the Loveappella Rori Button Detail Knit Top $48

20160709_162702

I loved it.  It is so soft and comfy.  Plus I can wear to work or out.  It is a keeper.

Next is the Loveappella Domenique Lace Detail Crossback Knit Top $48

20160709_16290720160709_162913

Cute top and I love the color.  However, I feel like I would be pulling at the shirt all night thinking my shirt was riding up.  Since I do not like to be annoyed while wearing clothes, I sent it back.

Next is the Marlyn Schiff Clarita Floral Filigree Earrings $34

20160709_162814

I love silver jewelry but couldn’t see myself wearing them too much so I sent them back.

Last is the Market &Spruce Benni Crossfront Knit Top $48 with the Lysse Evita Pencil Skirt $88

20160709_163142

My husband loved the top but the back was pretty sheer.  I hate layering because it is so hot here that I sent the top back.  The skirt has a black on black floral print.  One of the blacks is more faded so the flowers really stand out.  Hard to tell from the picture though.  This skirt has a liner and an elastic waist.  It was very comfy but it was so hot!!  I would be sweating in this at school as my room has unpredictable temperatures.  I also sent the skirt back.

So I only kept one item but I was very happy with this fix because there was nothing I just hated.  I have already requested my stylists again for September. You can sign up for your own fix here.

May Stitch Fix

Every other month, I get clothes from Stitch Fix. This has helped me get creative on work clothes so I am just not wearing black pants and a single color top (which if that is what you do, then that is perfectly fine, it is just not me).

First, if you are not familiar with Stitch Fix, here is how it works:

1. Fill out your Style Profile. This gives detail on your style, sizes, budget and anything else like a link to your pinterest board.

2. Once you have “ordered” your box, they will send you 5 items from a personal stylists.  It is a $20 styling fee which is applied as a credit toward anything you keep.

3. Try everything on. They send you Style Cards with recommendations on how to wear your outfit.  You have three days to decide what you do and do not want.

4. Buy what you like and return the rest. If you keep all 5 items, you get 25% off your entire purchase.  Don’t like something, they send you a pre-paid mailing bag to drop in the mailbox.  It is free shipping.

This month and I asked for the last stylists I had and wanted something for upcoming family photos. Here is what I got in May.

20160518_055213

Here is my note from the stylist.

20160513_174251

Bancroft Leighton Metal Bauble Necklace- $34

The necklace is cute but it didn’t sit right on me, like it all bunched up so I returned.

20160513_173838

Moon and Sky Melbourne Lace Overlay Knit Top- $54

Top fit fine and it is cute but I have a similar top to this already. Return.20160513_17300420160513_173000

Fate Selita Strappy Back Top- $48.

My only concern is how wrinkly it is.  I am not one to iron.  However the husband really liked it. Kept.

20160513_172810

Kut from the kloth Mindy Printed Maxi Skirt-$68

The maxi has a nice flow to it and it has two cut slits on both sides.  I am not a floral person.  After much debate with friends (since my husband likes everything) I kept it.

Not shown is the Adelyn Rae Treena V-neck Dress $108

Cute dress but it is too heavy for the summer, a little too short for me and would not zip up past my boobs so I returned that item as well.

Stitch Fix Review

One thing about me is that I love clothes.  I have a professional job where I need to dress a certain way.  However, I also love to be comfy at home so when I do go to stores to shop, I am more attracted to the sweatpants and running clothes.  That is when Stitch Fix became a lifesaver to me. I have been doing Stitch Fix for awhile now but I do every other month or my clothing situation might get out of hand.  So the following box is what I received in March.

First, if you are not familiar with Stitch Fix, here is how it works:

1. Fill out your Style Profile. This gives detail on your style, sizes, budget and anything else like a link to your pinterest board.

2. Once you have “ordered” your box, they will send you 5 items from a personal stylists.  It is a $20 styling fee which is applied as a credit toward anything you keep.

3. Try everything on. They send you Style Cards with recommendations on how to wear your outfit.  You have three days to decide what you do and do not want.

4. Buy what you like and return the rest. If you keep all 5 items, you get 25% off your entire purchase.  Don’t like something, they send you a pre-paid mailing bag to drop in the mailbox.  It is free shipping.

So what did I get and I was bad because I threw away my receipt with all prices and items names. When I opened my box I was so excited to see shoes!20160323_172104.jpg

My note from my stylist.  I like her a lot so I have requested her again.

20160323_172117

Please forgive my hair as I drive with the windows down when it is nice out. Here is what I got:

This top which I returned.  I did not like the color on me or design. The jeans are mine, a similar pair can be found here.20160323_172417

They suggested I wear this Market and Spruce Abberley Cut Out Detail Knit Top with these Kut from the Kloth Siena Cropped Pants.  I did end up buying both but have not worn them together. I love the pants color which they call Dark Pink but Kut from the Kloth calls them Mulberry. I have worn the pants to work and have gotten a lot of compliments on the color.  The top has a really cute back which is perfect to show off my sports bra line.

20160323_17273420160323_173335

 

 

 

 

These FFC New York Two toned flats are so cute so I know I needed them.20160323_172757

Lastly is the black Colette cutout back top which I returned and am not posting a pic of because of where the cutouts are, you can see undergarments.  I suppose you could where a cami underneath it but I think that would take away from the look.

So I ended up buying 3/5 items which I normally do about 2.  My goal is to find 1 or 2 pieces I enjoy.  I do not want 5/5 because that means I am spending a lot of money.  I just want pieces I really enjoy and will get a lot of use of.
